About me

Hello, my name is Lyn Cassin. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, (LCSW) in Indiana. I have worked in the mental health field since 2006 when I graduated with my BSW from Youngstown (Ohio) State University. I became a therapist once I obtained my MSW in 2012. The reason I became a therapist was to be able to help others who are struggling with the challenges of daily living. I've worked with adults who experience depression, anxiety, panic attacks, loss, abuse, addiction issues, and trauma survivors. My therapy approaches combine Cognitive Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Trauma-informed, Dialectical Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, and other Strength-based therapies. We all need help at some time in our lives. I hope to have the chance to help you with whatever you are struggling with by providing a safe, non-judgemental place for you to talk, and be heard.

My budding relationship with Lyn, my new therapits, is going better than I had anticipated. I'm really starting to feel connected and not so alone. I'm very glad I started.

I feel very comfortable speaking to Lyn. She listens, understands not just what I am saying, but how I am feeling and she is able to respond in a helpful manner. I also like that she is able to send me "homework" to complete between sessions; this is a big help to me and my own accountability in doing my part of getting myself the help I need. It is comforting to know that Lyn has dealt with similar situations in her life, and that she truly understands where I am at in my life right now. I look forward to continuing my therapy with Lyn for as long as I can afford it.

I really wasn’t sure this online counseling thing was going to work but I’m pleasantly surprised! Lyn is really helping me with my problems. I’ve been to several therapists over the years, long ago, and I feel more comfortable with her than I did with any of them. I’ll continue to see Lyn as long as it’s cost effective for me:-)

I can't put into words how helpful Lyn has been for me. She has that great balance I look for in a therapist of listening and responding. I would highly recommend Lyn for anyone dealing with trauma.

Lyn has been such a helpful resource to listen and provide practical tips!

Written on Jan 01, 2022 after therapy with Lyn for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

I feel that Lyn truly understands my situation and things that factor in. She listens, provides ways to obtain additional resources and is very quick to respond outside of designated sessions. I've seen several therapists over the years and I've never felt comfortable with them like I do with Lyn. Her knowledge, experience and personable demeanor sets her apart. I am so thankful for her during one of the most difficult times in my life.

Lyn has been a great help to me the last while. She is a great listener and really validates your feelings.

Written on Jul 18, 2021 after therapy with Lyn for 3 months

Lyn is very personable and polite. She related to me in many ways and made me feel ok for what I'm dealing with. She is very smart, but it's pushy or clinical. I felt as though I was talking to my best friend's mom.

Lyn is deeply compassionate and understanding. Her advice has helped me so much in navigating some difficult emotions and anxiety. I feel like she really takes the time to consider my thoughts, and she responds quickly to messages and journal entries. Thank you so much, Lyn!

Written on Nov 28, 2020 after therapy with Lyn for 1 month on issues concerning coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Lyn is a true professional who identified some good strategies for me to deal with stress and burnout.

Written on Nov 27, 2020 after therapy with Lyn for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, and coping with life changes

Lyn has helped me so much over the last few months that I feel confident enough to end therapy. Being able to do that in and of itself speaks volumes. Being able to end therapy right before the holidays which has admittedly been a rough time for me speaks even higher of how much Lyn has helped me. It’s hard to say goodbye, but she has given me so much that I feel ready. I can not thank her enough.

Written on Nov 07, 2020 after therapy with Lyn for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, compassion fatigue, and adhd

My counselor Lyn has been very supportive as I have accepted and processed many different kinds of abuse that have occurred over the course of my life for the first time - religious, sexual, and emotional abuse. Her kindness and ability to meet me where I’m at has kept me coming back. I’m so thankful I finally started therapy and that Lyn has been there for me.

Written on Oct 29, 2020 after therapy with Lyn for 1 month on issues concerning addictions, and relationship issues

Lyn is great. She really understands my issues and is a great listener. Her advice is always on point. She lets me make my own decisions but also gently guides me. I would recommend Lyn to anyone.

Work with me!
